    Hmm, I had thought I clicked on a link for 2019. The only other thing I can find is this page for 2018:

    https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/products/databriefs/db355.htm

    It seems strange that more up-to-date data isn't available.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/18/us/politics/trump-hydroxychloroquine-covid-coronavirus.html

    His announcement drew immediate criticism from a range of medical experts, who warned not just of the dangers it posed for the president’s health but also of the example it set.

    My concern would be that the public not hear comments about the use of hydroxychloroquine and believe that taking this drug to prevent Covid-19 infection is without hazards. In fact, there are serious hazards,” said Dr. Steven E. Nissen, the chief academic officer of the Miller Family Heart, Vascular & Thoracic Institute at the Cleveland Clinic.

    I think it’s a very bad idea to be taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventive medication,” said Dr. Eric Topol, a cardiologist and the director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute in La Jolla, Calif. “There are no data to support that, there’s no evidence and in fact there is no compelling evidence to support its use at all at this point.”

    Dr. Topol said the risk of developing a potentially fatal arrhythmia because of hydroxychloroquine could come without warning and did not happen only in people with heart conditions. “We can’t predict that. In fact, it can happen in people who are healthy,” he said. “It could happen in anyone.”

    As cases increase due to relaxing state and local restrictions (at least not enforcing those new restrictions ie beach, park, bar gatherings) we will see more cases like this one.

    Oregon Supreme Court reinstates governor’s coronavirus restrictions after they were tossed by local judge

    Yeah why trust research published in PubMed done with the gold standard of testing mechanisms and 2880 participants?


    Try again: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31607599/

    Using the military as guinea pigs for vaccines is commonplace. - May as well scan the data for truth - eh?


    The study shows an increase of prevalance of ALL coronaviruses amongst DoD personnel that were injected with the flu vaccine.

    Let's start with the question of Where are you getting the supporting evidence in that study to your "ALL" claim.

    Interesting article on the research behind how COVID-19 spreads. There’s still a lot to learn, but it seems that most of the disease is spread by a few individuals infecting a large number of other people, while most people with it infect nobody else. If this holds true and we can determine the conditions under which it is spread, we could make more precise, well informed decisions about what kind of activities are safe to allow and which are not.

    Why do some COVID-19 patients infect many others, whereas most don’t spread the virus at all?

    These are really hopeful findings. A couple more quotes from the article:

    But in real life, some people infect many others and others don’t spread the disease at all. In fact, the latter is the norm, Lloyd-Smith says: “The consistent pattern is that the most common number is zero. Most people do not transmit.”

    “Probably about 10% of cases lead to 80% of the spread,” Kucharski says.

    On 2nd thought, Compassion, forget it. I don't want to read any more of your made up lies, much less reply to any of them, so I'm putting you on ignore.

    To others - Since I don't trust Compassion, I checked a bit on that article he keeps linking to. A more complete version, with an additional set of conclusions:

    Definitely a more complete report... "Examining non-influenza viruses specifically, the odds of both coronavirus and human metapneumovirus in vaccinated individuals were significantly higher when compared to unvaccinated individuals (OR = 1.36 and 1.51, respectively)." (Table 5)

    Table 5. Respiratory viruses and odds ratios by vaccination status (abstract)

    Virus Vaccinated (%) Not Vaccinated (%) OR (95% CI) P-Value

    Coronavirus 507 (7.8) 170 (5.8) 1.36 (1.14, 1.63) <0.01

    Human Metapneumovirus 335 (5.1) 101 (3.5) 1.51 (1.20, 1.90) <0.01

    No Pathogen Detected 2441 (37.3) 799 (27.3) 1.59 (1.44, 1.75) <0.01

    I found it a difficult article to follow well enough, and didn't spend much time trying to decipher it. Going with the authors' expertise - when all things were considered regarding their study:

    "The overall results of the study showed little to no evidence supporting the association of virus interference and influenza vaccination. Individual respiratory virus results were mixed, and some rebutted virus interference. Additionally those receiving the influenza vaccine were more likely to have no pathogen detected and reduced risk of influenza when compared to unvaccinated individuals. Further research is necessary to help character virus interference and validate or refute the validity of the test-negative design for influenza vaccine effectiveness."

    From an article I'd posted a link to previously, the coronaviruses talked about were said to be 4 of the seasonal common cold creating type, not more serious ones like covid-19 - which wasn't around at the time of the study. As the authors said, more research needed on that.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/21/world/asia/coronavirus-china-lockdown.html

    After New Coronavirus Outbreaks, China Imposes Wuhan-Style Lockdown

    Infections in the northeast have led officials to sequester hundreds of thousands at home.

    The latest outbreak is concentrated in Jilin, a northeastern province of 27 million people that sits near China’s borders with Russia and North Korea. Jilin has reported a small outbreak of about 130 cases and two deaths, but experts there have warned of the threat of a “big explosion.”

    The authorities have also imposed a lockdown on parts of Jilin City, a manufacturing base, bringing factories to a standstill and quieting streets. In some areas, residents are allowed to leave their homes only once every two days, and for a maximum of two hours, to shop for groceries.

    Chen Ying, a public health researcher at Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, said officials were reacting forcefully in the northeast because the experience in Wuhan had demonstrated the importance of early, stringent action.

    “If we had this chance in Wuhan, we would have taken similar measures,” he said. “The consequences will be very big if this is not controlled.”
